Environmental Action Committee of West Marin
2019 – $10,000 Coastal Resiliency
2018 – $20,000 Regional Strategy
2016 – $9,000 General Support

In response to impending threats of climate change and sea-level rise, several municipalities along the California coast are preparing comprehensive planning documents to provide public guidance on the consequences of rising seas.  Strong public standards and guidelines are needed to address how changing environmental conditions, like flooding, runoff, erosion, salinity changes, temperature changes, and ocean acidification will affect habitats in tidal zones, coastal dunes, estuaries, and riparian corridors.  In addition, planning documents need to provide comprehensive and realistic solutions for property owners and municipalities that are located within flood plains and include options to utilize new technology and green infrastructure that are balanced in the best available science.

The Environmental Action Committee (EAC) is uniquely positioned to review Marin County’s proposed guidelines in their amended Local Coastal Plan’s environmental hazards chapter.  The EAC will provide comments and public information to the community based on a comprehensive review of the County’s proposals.

Climate One at The Commonwealth Club is a thriving leadership dialogue on energy, the environment and the economy. It brings together top thinkers and doers from business, government, academia and advocacy groups to advance the discussion about a clean energy future. Climate One‘s programs are open to the public and then widely disseminated through podcasts and broadcast on public radio state-wide.

Climate One produced Resilience, a two-part program series addressing the Bay Area’s preparations for a harsh climate future. The first program, “Resilient Cities,” brought together professionals and community leaders to discuss green infrastructure and planning, and the costs of protecting property and individuals from the impacts of severe weather. The upcoming “Climate Equity” program will discuss inclusively the growing green economy, and whether underserved communities will benefit from green jobs and cleaner communities.

Established in 1998 by a coalition of youth, educators and community leaders, Literacy for Environmental Justice (LEJ) strives to promote community development in Southeast San Francisco through eco-literacy, environmental stewardship and workforce development opportunities to empower and support locals in securing a healthier future.

LEJ is currently undertaking the rehabilitation of Candlestick Point State Recreation Area (CPSRA), establishing walk-in & boat-in campsites, coastal habitat restoration, a walking trail and community garden.  They plan to expand the native plant nursery that produces drought-tolerant native plants, subsequently increasing the climate change resiliency of San Francisco. The Healthy Habitats & Lifestyles Project serves an historically under-privileged neighborhood while actively rehabilitating the CPSRA by creating opportunities for the outreach, design and ecological restoration to be completed by local volunteers with an emphasis on youth participation and job training.
